OK, I've now heard every possibility. What is the correct local pronunciation of Ambergris Caye (both words, Ambergris and Caye)?

What a good question! I had been saying it wrong until last week when I read the correct pronunciation in a book(I'd been doing this crazy french thing, where I said am-bur-gree). San Ignacio's not tricky, is it? I'm going with:
ig-nae-seeo. Is "Cayo" pronounced: ki-o, or
kay-o?
